DETOXIFICATION THERAPY

In today’s times, we all live in a toxic environment and hence it is natural to have some level of toxicity within our bodies as well. Toxicity is triggered not just environmental factors (air pollution, food contamination, harsh chemicals) but also by high levels of stress and poor lifestyle choices. Regular cleansing of the body has become essential for our overall well-being.

As per Ayurveda, accumulation of toxins creates an unbalance state of Doshas (Kapha, Pitta, and Vata) in the body. With a prolonged state of imbalance, body’s immunity gets compromised and it becomes the play-field of diseases. With the specialized Ayurvedic therapeutic procedure called Panchakarma, such toxins can be easily eliminated, and physical well-being of the Patient can be restored.

“Pancha” in Sanskrit denoted the number five and “Karma” means action or procedure. Panchakarma is thereby a fivefold treatment procedure that is administered to a person for detoxification of the body. This process is also used to treat many other ailments as well.

THE AKAMI AYURVEDA APPROACH

As any treatment procedure, the process of Panchakarma requires us to prepare the patient, prior to the main course of the five-fold treatment.

      1.Poorvakarma: The first line of treatment in which the patient is primed and readied for the main treatment regime.
      2.Snehaha Karma: “Snehaha" means oleation (to smoothen). This procedure involves internal and external applications of medicated oil that loosens the toxins. This is combined with a body massage (abhyangam) to increase blood circulation. Through this process, toxins are channelled from various tissues and organs towards the gastrointestinal tract and into the liver and kidneys.
      3.Swedana Karma: “Swedana" means fomentation. This procedure liquefies the vitiated Doshas (Pitta, Vata, Kapha) within the body so that the water-soluble toxins are eliminated through the skin as perspiration.
The Main Panchkarma Treatment (Pradhana Karma) Includes:
      1.Vamanam is medically induced emesis (vomiting). The toxins (phlegm and mucous) in the stomach are brought out using this procedure.
      2.Virechanam is medically induced purgation. Through this process, the toxins in the small intestine and bile are excreted.
      3.Vasthi (or Basti) is the administration of hypertonic enemas. They are of two types based on the base liquid - oil-based Vasthi and decoction-based Vasthi. It is the safest way to eliminate the toxins that have accumulated in the large intestine or colon.
      4.Nasyam is the nasal instillation of oils / medicated fumes / herbal powders through the nostrils.
      5.Paschata Karma is where the ‘Agni’ or metabolic fire of the person is brought back again and the individual is led to a normal diet and lifestyle.

After the procedure is completed, a set of instructions are provided for the individual to lead a healthy and disease-free life. We highly recommend regular Meditation to our patients for mental cleansing and lowering stress levels.
